Energy

Energy and the environmental impact it has can be broken down into two main parts, where we get it and how much we use. 

For a long time, changing where we get energy has been all about solar panels and wind turbines. To have clean and green energy, you used to have to fork out for expensive solar panels. In the last 10 years, there has been some incredible progress in the field of clean and renewable energy. We’ve got a point where it is much more achievable for the average household to get some solar panels and perhaps even a battery to store it. While switching to solar power is a great way to take control of your own impact and energy usage, the price is still a significant barrier to a lot of people. This is absolutely fair enough and as we’ve said before, this website is about discovering simple and affordable ways to reduce your impact on the environment. So, if you don’t have the money for solar panels, what can you do? 

Visit www.powershop.com.au. This company is truly amazing. All of their power is 100% carbon neutral and they have options to switch to 100% renewable energy. This is a big deal for people who can’t afford solar panels or who don’t have control over getting panels on their roof. Switching to Power Shop may not be an option for everyone but if you have control over your power company, or can convince whoever pays the bill, switch to Power Shop.
